This Polaroid 600 is refurbished, not new. Polaroid went out of business decades ago. "Impossible" bought it's proprietary film rights. Now Impossible has started, refurbishing old cameras that harkin back to Polaroids glory days.
You can take pictures in color, black and white. The film you buy determines the color of the picture frame, white black, round, rectangular. These are souvenir pictures. Perfect for individual party gifts at children's birthday parties. Or to capture the moments at an office party to post in the break room. Or behind the scenes at a wedding!
You buy film separately. It's pricey! Film takes 25 minutes to develop totally and it's important to try to not to expose the film to light. Let it develop upside down and if possible, somewhere nicely shaded. The camera itself is easy with very few controls-- lighter darker, flash or no flash, portrait or scenery. The battery to operate the camera comes in each batch of film, so most operating instructions are on the film. The film requires delicate, simple handling. It's generally best to store unopened film in the refrigerator to keep the film fresh. Once installed in the camera, remaining film will be ruined if you try to remove it.
Taking Polaroids is fun! That's the whole point. And it's why people miss the camera. The camera is light enough that it can be held and operated by a young child.
We've had a lot of fun with ours and our toddler is intrigued! We wonder when she'll be taking her own pictures...
There is a little hole where the flash unit clicks into the base and that is cracked.
I am a Vine reviewer so didn't pay for the camera or I would have sent it back immediately.
I will have to find film and try it another time.
I will start with the two negatives (no pun intended). First, the way the camera was packaged for shipment was sub-par and the package was partially crushed when I received it. It did not appear to be damaged beyond the packaging, but it was a disappointment to open the package and find the merchandise box partially crushed. Second, the camera comes with no film or batteries at all. So, the camera by itself is still a paperweight. It would have been nice to have at least a lower capacity pack for film to get started.
The camera came out of the box without a mark on it. It looks to be brand new, in spite of being an older unit. Some of the other reviewers have complained that the camera they received either was scratched up or was partially damaged, but mine is pristine. It's a simple, straightforward device too, and it does not require much thought to use.
In use, it works just like it would have when new. It fires the flash, spits out one exposure with that same distinctive sound I remember and the film develops in front of you. The exposure still looks grainy and old when it is all done, but it is a real photograph that does not need a separate printer or software to get a hard copy. This is not the kind of camera a photographer would use, but rather it is for the tourist or enthusiast.
Why would you want a camera like this? For me, it is a trip down memory lane to a time years ago, when candid pictures were a part of daily life and the exposures were lined up on the pinboard for all to see without needing a computer or tablet. It is not going to make pictures that look like they could be in a magazine, but it will produce pictures you can enjoy right away.
